The article reports on the U.S. National Cotton Council leader's views on cotton farm program spending. President George W. Bush's proposals for reforming Social Security are expected to dominate the congressional agenda. If the budget ultimately adopted by Congress requires reductions in future agricultural spending, some members of Congress will resurrect proposals to cut spending by lowering payment limitations, eliminating the three-entity rule and eliminating marketing loan redemptions with certificates. The council officials reported that all groups with an interest in farm programs, conservation, nutrition, risk management and trade will have to work together to insure that agriculture is treated fairly in the new budget.
